We decided to play the NEC because we were asked to, and because we actually rather like the place: we’ve always enjoyed doing it before. We don’t often get sensible offers to play in the UK, so most years we just play on the mainland, with the occasional exotic detour.

Andrew Eldritch was born in the small cathedral city of Ely.
